The Montini Catholic High School Mack Family Learning Resource Center (LRC) was completed in 2009 as part of Phase II of the Capital Campaign. The Mack Family Learning Resource Center was generously contributed to Montini Catholic High School by Edward and Pam Mack, parents of Montini Catholic graduates, George '01, Michael '04, and Andrew '08. Ed, a partner (retired) of Accenture, and Pam, a registered nurse, have been and are presently involved in the Montini Catholic school community. Ed is a member of the Montini Catholic High School Board of Directors, serving as the Chairman of the Board's Building and Grounds Committee and a member of the Board's Marketing Committee. Pam served as President of the Montini Catholic Parent's Club Board from 2001 to 2003 and from 2006 to 2008 and remained as a member of the parent club board as a class representative in 2004 and 2005. Throughout the 10 years that their children attended Montini Catholic, Ed and Pam were very involved in a number of Montini Catholic programs and events and volunteered countless hours of time and service to the Montini Catholic school community. Without their leadership, generosity and support, Part II of the "Celebrate Our Future...Building On Success" Capital Campaign could never have been initiated.

Students come to the Mack Family LRC with their classes to do research projects. They may also access the Mack Family LRC on their own before and after school and during their study halls.
The Peer Tutoring Program, sponsored by the National Honor Society (NHS), takes place in study rooms in the Mack LRC. NHS members volunteer to tutor other students in particular subjects. Students who need academic help are referred to the NHS Peer Tutoring Program by their teachers, counselor, or at their parents request. Students arrange their own tutoring schedule by deciding on mutually convenient days and times. The peer tutor and student meet in the Mack Family LRC either before or after regular school hours. The The Peer Tutoring Program is moderated by Mr. Art Stuart
The Mack Family LRC is open everyday from 7:30 am until 5:15 pm. One librarian and two library aides are available to assist students during the school day.
